Description

Use the CurrentDriver property to obtain the last DDTDriver object created with either ADODriver, ExcelDriver or CSVDriver methods of the DDT object. The property frees you from using a global variable to store the reference to the driver in a case when the driver creation and data processing code are located in different script routines (see Using DDT Drivers).

Declaration

DDT.CurrentDriver

Read-Only Property A DDTDriver object

Applies To

The property is applied to the following object:

Property Value

A DDTDriver object that provides scripting interface to the last created driver object.

Example

The code below creates a new Excel driver and gets access to its methods and properties via the CurrentDriver property.

JavaScript, JScript

function CurDriverExample()
{
  // Creates a driver
  DDT.ExcelDriver("C:\\MyFile.xls", "Sheet1");
   
  // Iterates through records
  while (! DDT.CurrentDriver.EOF())
  {
  //Gets a value from the storage and posts it to the log
    Log.Message(Driver.Value(0));
    DDT.CurrentDriver.Next();
  }
  
  // Closes the driver
  DDT.CloseDriver(DDT.CurrentDriver.Name);
}

Python

def CurDriverExample():
  # Creates a driver 
  DDT.ExcelDriver("C:\\MyFiles\\MyFile.xls", "Sheet1")
  # Iterates through records 
  while not DDT.CurrentDriver.EOF():
    # Gets a value from the storage and posts it to the log 
    Log.Message(DDT.CurrentDriver.Value[0]) 
    DDT.CurrentDriver.Next()
  # Closes the driver 
  DDT.CloseDriver(DDT.CurrentDriver.Name)

VBScript

Sub CurDriverExample
  
  ' Creates a driver
  Call DDT.ExcelDriver("C:\MyFile.xls", "Sheet1")
   
  ' Iterates through records
  While Not DDT.CurrentDriver.EOF()

  ' Gets a value from the storage and posts it to the log
    Log.Message(Driver.Value(0))
    DDT.CurrentDriver.Next()
  WEnd
   
  ' Closes the driver
  DDT.CloseDriver(DDT.CurrentDriver.Name)
  
End Sub

DelphiScript

function CurDriverExample;
begin

  // Creates a driver
  DDT.ExcelDriver('C:\MyFile.xls', 'Sheet1');
   
  // Iterates through records
  While Not DDT.CurrentDriver.EOF() do
  begin
  //Gets a value from the storage and posts it to the log
    Log.Message(Driver.Value(0));
    DDT.CurrentDriver.Next();
  end;
  
  // Closes the driver
  DDT.CloseDriver(DDT.CurrentDriver.Name);

end;

C++Script, C#Script

function CurDriverExample()
{
  // Creates a driver
  DDT["ExcelDriver"]("C:\\MyFile.xls", "Sheet1");
   
  // Iterates through records
  while (! DDT["CurrentDriver"]["EOF"]())
  {
  //Gets a value from the storage and posts it to the log
    Log.Message(Driver["Value"](0));
    DDT["CurrentDriver"]["Next"]();
  }
  
  // Closes the driver
  DDT["CloseDriver"]( DDT["CurrentDriver"]["Name"] );
}
